McDonnell XF-85 Goblin with B-36 Peacemaker Carrier
Might as well get a few extra miles out of the B-36 before I destroy it!
About this creation


The tiny fighter was only 21 feet long and a mere 14 feet wide, but it was fast and maneuverable.



Because my B-36 is smaller than minifig scale and I wanted this to be at the same scale, my Goblin had to be tiny. Getting a small but sturdy size was a real challenge, so here is what I settled with.



It looks sort of like an egg. A fast egg. With wings. And a jet engine. And 4 .50 calibre machine guns. And a glass canopy.



Too small to express fully, the Goblin had three rudders and a tailplane similar to the ones found on missiles. Sort of.



At a scale like this, the plane doesn't look all that aerodynamic, but it works for me.



And to fit fully in the bomb bay of the B-36, the wings had to fold up. And they do.



And here is the trapeze. That brick over on the right is a counterweight. And see that claw on the far right?...



It extends out to grab the fighter and pull it in. The interior on my B-36 was never meant to be used as an actual storage area, so it was a bit awkward to put the fixtures in. I also had a very little time window.



The claw extends down...



And then grabs the tiny fighter and puts it into its bomb bay for storage.





After a test flight, the plane docks with the trapeze.



The engines are shut down, and the wings are folded up.



Then the plane is hauled fully into the bomb bay. Carrier B-36 planes were to carry three of these, and the carriers would have compromised of 10% of a bomber fleet.



Bomb doors closed and the fighter is safe and sound inside the B-36.
Don't believe me? See for yourself...





This was originally tested on a B-29. It didn't work so well. I hope you enjoyed!

Once you change it back I'll give it another like and that should restore your likes. I just had a glitch myself where I lost 2 likes on half my models, but as they got commented on they came back. Crazy huh

Go back in to your peacemaker and change the setting back to allow comments and see if that fixes it :-)

Quoting Kurt's MOCs The Goblin is a nice addition! Nicely done trapeze as well!
Thanks you! I really think the goblin is an interesting plane, so I wanted to make one. However, it would have looked a bit.... small without anything else beside it, so that's were the B-36 comes in really useful!

I thought of the 262 to, but there's been quite a few already done . I was trying to think of an awesome aircraft that not many people think of but when they see it are blown away by it. I don't know how many curved slopes you have but the wings of the A-1 would look great. Plus like I mentioned in my first comment you can hang a lot of eye catching ordnance off this puppy :-)

Quoting Henrik Jensen Really a good model object, which also requires a lot of work. The B36 model is easily recognizable, but I think the body looks a little too thick. The Little Goblin is quite good, the small scale taken into account. keep up the good work.
Well to make the body slimmer I would have to redo the whole plane (and that would take a long time). The B-36 is really not supposed to be the main focus, but I do agree that I did make it a bit too wide. But thank you!

Are you kidding me it's awesome . It was a really ugly aircraft that's why they called it the Goblin :-) I recognized it instantly . You nailed it.
